Dear Maroa-Forsyth School District Families,
I hope this message finds you well. It has been awesome to see students back in our buildings this week. The entire week has been a huge success thanks to the efforts and commitments made by our staff, students, and parents.
We must not back off practicing faithfully the health guidelines that I like to refer to as The FIVE. Students are at school 6 hours a day which means 18 hours a day they are home or out in other parts of our communities. The FIVE must be in place 24 hours a day if we are going to continue to have successful In-Person school. Please over this 3-day holiday weekend practice the health & safety measures. It is imperative. I'd like to add one more to The FIVE. And, this is a hard one on a holiday weekend that has a lot of traditions and symbolizes the end of the summer season. Avoid large gatherings and groups of people. Here is a quick reminder of The FIVE:
- Wear Masks
- Social Distance
- Clean Surfaces
- Wash Hands
- Isolate if Sick
I'd also like to inform you of our metrics this week here at school related to the COVID:
- # of staff quarantined - 5
- # of symptomatic positive test staff - 0
- # of staff quarantined total - 5

Finally, I'd like to direct you to the following link on our website about a new announcement regarding free lunch meals for all as was in place last spring. All school districts have been granted this status through December 31, 2020.
I hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
With Maroa-Forsyth Trojan Pride,
